SUDDEN DEATHOF-THEMARQUIS CAMDEN, K.G. The Marquis Camden was found dead in his bed on Monday morning, about eight o'clock, at his seat Bay- ham Abbey, near Tunbridge Wells, from natural causes. Mr. Starling, his medical attendant, was sent for, and pronounced life to have been extinct for some hours. The Earl of Brecknock, now Marquis Camden, on his wedding tour, is expected this evening from Cowes. The deceased nobleman was born on the 2nd of May, 1799, and was consequently in his 68th year. He suc- ceeded his father in 1840. He was married in 1835 to Harriet, eldest daughter of Dr. Murray, late Bishop of Rochester, and leaves issue two sons and eight daughters. His eldest son, John Charles, Earl of Brecknock, M.P. for the Brecon burghs, was married only on the 12th ult. to Lady Clementina Spencer Churchill, sister of the Duke of Marlborough, and had not returned from his wedding tour. The late marquis was president of the Kent Archaeo- logical Society, and on Thursday and Friday last pre- sided over its annual meeting, at Ashford, with his usual ability and urbanity, and apparently in excellent health. He was also patron or president of several other societies of a scientific and philanthropic character, and did much by precept and example to forward the movement for the improvement of the dwelliugs of the agricultural labourers, for whose social, physical, and spiritual wel- fare he always displayed the utmost concern. The late marquis was greatly beloved and respected in the county of Kent, as well as in the higher circles in which he moved, and his unexpected death will be much regretted.
